Last week I realized that it’s been a long time since I’ve made my Alfredo sauce. With so many things I try and experiment in the kitchen, sometimes I forget to make our favorite dishes. So I whipped up a big batch of Alfredo sauce and wanted to use it in different dishes.

This is one of the tasty things that I made with my Alfredo sauce and they were a huge success! These hand pies don’t just make a great snack, they can be served for lunch or dinner with some veggies on a side.

Broccoli Chicken Alfredo Hand Pies

Yield: 4 large hand pies

Ingredients

  • Alfredo:
  • 2 tbs Butter
  • 1 glove of garlic
  • 1 tbs flour
  • 2 cups Heavy Cream
  • 1/2 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup dry Parmesan cheese
  • salt/pepper
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • Hand Pies:
  • 1 tbs oil
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup of diced broccoli florets (steamed)
  • salt, pepper
  • 3/4 cup of Alfredo cause
  • 1 pack of Pillsbury pie crust (there are 2 inside)
  • (1 small egg whisked with 1 tbs of water for egg wash)

Instructions

  1. Alfredo:
  2. Melt butter in a sauce pan on medium.
  3. Add minced garlic and saute until fragrant. Sprinkle the flour over it and slowly add heavy cream WHILE whisking constantly. Heat through on medium heat, stirring.
  4. Add sour cream, Parmesan cheeses, salt and pepper. Keep cooking on medium-low for about 5-7 minutes, stirring often.

  7. Dice the cooked chicken and mix it with steamed broccoli and Alfredo sauce.
  8. Roll out the dough and cut them in half. Separate the chicken mixture between the four dough halves. Fold the hand pies and make sure to press the seams together (you can cut off the excess dough).

  10. Brush the hand pies with egg wash and bake them for 20-25 minutes, until the pies are golden brown.

    • I wish that I could say “healthier!” I will say that you know what ingredients are in it exactly and that is great! Calorie wise, not much healthier :)
      Thank you, Natalia!

  15. I am so excited about these! Thank you so much for sharing. I have been looking for easy portable recipes that can be taken to the fields for harvest season. My mother in law always shows up with a 5 course dinner in the back of her SUV and I just can’t swing that especially when I am in a tractor all day. I can make these ahead, wrap in foil and go! :) Pinning and making this weekend FOR SURE!!

  16. Those look delicious! I need to give those a try…soon! ;)

  18. Stephanie says:

    Do you know the nutritional info for these?

  19. These look great and I can’t wait to try the recipe soon. Has anyone made these with puff pastry dough? I’m just wondering if it’s too light for these. I will use my homemade pie crust if puff pastry doesn’t work out.

  20. Made these tonight for dinner – they were a hit! Can’t wait to make them again! :)
